A thousand speeches. Disgusting soup. Hot dogs that taste as if they’re actually stuffed with old dogs. But worse than that, Pop finds a million jobs for us to do beforehand. Pop keeps going. “And most of all, set Steadman a good example. ” He begins to mutter to himself, his hands up to his forehead. “The house is falling apart. Leaks and garish murals all over—­” I wonder what garish means. But now Zack is making pizza eyes at me that fortunately Pop can’t see. For a moment I’m confused. Then I see Pop’s shovel leaning against the wall with his wire cutters, hacksaw, and a loop of rope.

Zack’s idea is to let Diglio bomb New34 field. “The two of us are finished anyway,” he says, jerking his head toward Mom and Pop’s bedroom. But I think of Mom and poor little Mary, who smiles when she sees me; Mary, who has only two white teeth. I think of Steadman, who will never even get to kindergarten. Even William and Linny aren’t so bad when you come right down to it. They’d save me if they could. No, letting Diglio get away with bombing the town would be the coward’s way out. Instead, my idea is to dig up the bomb and throw ourselves on it to take the impact.

You’re not supposed to—­” Steadman begins. Zack gives up his last emergency Hershey bar and ­Steadman leads us to the laptop. It’s stashed in Pop’s sock drawer under two thousand unmatched socks. We drag it out and rush back to our room, slamming the 33 door behind us. We sink down against the bedroom door to keep it sealed tight as a tomb; Linny will be making her rounds any minute. I hold the computer on my lap. It’s the key to saving Newfield, and even more important, the rest of the family.
